Re: Crating a puppy... how much is too much?
Are you picking up her water in the evening, or leaving it out?
How old is she?
I have been experimenting with the water limiting in the evenings. I began this because I was tired of getting up twice a night to let the pups out. When I limit their water intake after 8 pm, they will sleep all night, no accidents. Then, last night I took the dogs out late- around 1030- and they were drinking from their outside water bowl. I thought about taking it up, but decided to see how they did overnight. I was up at four to let them out. So, now I know it will be a little while longer before I can try it again.
Good luck! If you really don't want to crate at night, I think that is a good solution.
It also depends on age.
